Les Baudouins Morts existed between 1996 and 2000. They were a local cult band, with a strong following in the underground scene in and around the town of Leuven (Belgium). Their music, if that's what you want to call it, was just an excuse to promote radical leftwing protest, make sick jokes, criticize about everything and everyone walking the face of the planet and give everyone involved the opportunity to play his instrument to his own liking. The lyrics were always in Dutch, interlaced with an idiom derived from local dialect, making it practically impossible to perform outside of Flanders. Concerts were usually defined by a strong connection between band and audience.

Notes

Les Baudouins Morts existed between 1996 and 2000. They were a local cult band, with a strong following in the underground scene in and around the town of Leuven (Belgium). Their music, if that's what you want to call it, was just an excuse to promote radical leftwing protest, make sick jokes, criticize about everything and everyone walking the face of the planet and give everyone involved the opportunity to play his instrument to his own liking. The lyrics were always in Dutch, interlaced with an idiom derived from local dialect, making it practically impossible to perform outside of Flanders. Concerts were usually defined by a strong connection between band and audience.

Les Baudouins Morts always played for free, to emphasize the fact that music and all other forms of cultural creativity should never be a part of the economy. They were the precursors of the ever-growing 'Ram Sabam'-movement which is currently trying to put an end to the all too powerful grip of the Belgian copyright organisation, called Sabam, on the music scene.

During its four years of existence, the band included the following members:
C3A - lead vocals
Baudouin Lahaut - backing vocals
Pater Meinhof - backing vocals
Buenaventura D’Orazio - lead guitar
Markies de Schade - keyboards, trumpet, trombone, occasional guitar
Lemmy Limbo - bass guitar
John Lenin - second guitar
Guust Kater - drums
Olaf the Viking - guitar
Vinz - percussion, guitar, banjo, keyboards
Mieke Vogelt - female backing vocals
BB Kinky - tenor sax

Some of these people still make music today:
C3A is a member of grindcore outfit Ulrike's Dream and has his own hiphop-project called Flahaut
Markies De Schade is a member of Highway
Lemmy Limbo is a member of The Shovels
Vinz is a member of Highway and has a solo career as a singer songwriter
BB Kinky is involved in various projects, mostly in the jazz scene

It was fun and it was relevant. For more information, visit the website www.musiquesdepassees.be, where you can contact Malcolm Nix, the band's former manager.
